The MCC Transfer Guide
The process of transfer really begins long before the “destination” college is chosen. The process might be best described as a series of questions – each one needing to be answered before the student can move to the next question. The final result being both an awareness of what is really wanted and a plan for how to attain it. Does this sound familiar? It should because this same process should be applied to every big decision you ever make, and transferring is a very big decision.
To simply tell a student if a course transfers or not, is a small piece of the transfer puzzle. Students must learn and understand how their courses fit within the structure of a bachelor’s degree. Once the student understands the structure of a bachelor’s degree: (1) General Education Core, (2) Major Requirements, and (3) Free Electives, and understands how their curriculum at MCC fits into this structure; then that student is well on their way to a successful transfer experience.
